Victory at the Cummins Power Generation STEM Day Final

26th March 2018

Four of our Yr9 students Missy Cameron, Jason Russell, Lucy McGuiness and Nation Limbu successfully competed against 6 other South East schools in a fiercely fought battle to win overall best concept and presentation in this years "Energise Your Future" competition at Cummins Power Generation, Manston. Our potential future engineers designed an environmentally friendly and cost effective way to heat the Olympic Stadium in South Korea delivering a professional and polished power point presentation, hand outs, research papers to support their findings and a 3D prototype printed by our 3D-HUB here at CCGS.

Judges praised the students for their hard work and well researched presentation and the students were each awarded a model of an internal combustion engine to build and a fabulous goodie bag. During the day, students took a guided tour of the Cummins Site, and took part in two competitive engineering challenges to build a "Lego" programmable robot and build a motor in a cup using copper wire, paper clips, elastic bands and two small magnets. Everyone enjoyed a Subway lunch together and chatted about their concepts and designs.

Cummins Power Generation are now looking into extending the experience for our four students by offering them the chance to work 1:1 with an engineer on site for a day.
